Bad doctors visit...

To say that I am mad, would be an understatement....pissed as hell is more like it.


Scheduled the normal once a year gyno, normally not a big deal.  This visit however, was to involve a vaginal ultrasound. My gyno is female, I have always refused having a male anything in the room due to past trauma and issues, and normally this isn't a problem either.  I called the day of said appointment, and reminded them to have a female tech doing the sound, they said no problem.

I checked in this morning, again reminded them, because I do not enjoy freaking out on a poor tech, who I understand is doing his job. Everything is confirmed, my usual doctor is there, nd then the door opens again, no knock no nothing, and a completely new male doctor walks in(with about 4 interns), promptly informs me that he is, "taking over", apparently because my condition is fairly rare for this area and he wants to look at the circus freak.   I am not at all happy by this point, and I refuse, and then the asshole pops out with this comment...


"What's your problem, you'd think you'd been raped the way you were carrying on", and then proceeded to laugh like he was having the time of his life.  

I was appalled and in tears by this point, my normal female( and quite nice), doctor was incensed, and she grabbed his coat and literally threw him out of the room.


I've already written a letter of complaint to the hospital and the medical board, and my doctor is adding  letter as well. All this happened at about 9am, and I've just now calmed down enough to vent about it.


I really hate(some) doctors at times.
